The HTC Thunderbolt premieres at CES 2011.

-Hey, everyone. I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com, and we're here at CES 2011 in Las Vegas where Verizon finally introduced the HTC ThunderBolt. This is HTC's first LTE device. So, it will be 4G capable. I just pulled up our webpage and it loaded it within 5 seconds, so, that was pretty good. As far as the design of the phone, it's very much like HTC's other devices--very high quality. It's got a 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen here that's gorgeous, and it is using the latest version of HTC Sense. It's got a little bit of a curve on the back and has a heavier feel, but it gives it a premium feel as well. So, as far as other features, it's running Android 2.2. It's also got a 1 gigahertz Snapdragon processor. On the front here, you've got a 1.3-megapixel camera so you can use it for video chats. And on back, you've got an 8-megapixel camera and a dual flash here. They haven't announced pricing or availability date yet, but, Verizon expects some of their 4G devices to come out by midyear. So, hopefully, that includes the HTC ThunderBolt. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your first look at the HTC ThunderBolt.
